Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): SPOILER: Two of the crew members jump from the Icarus I to the Icarus II without space suits. Contrary to expectations created by B-movie science fiction, this is entirely possible. The human body simply does not have enough internal pressure to explode in vacuum. Air in the lungs is expelled almost instantaneously, provided that the subject doesn't attempt try to hold his/her breath. Blood is contained and held under pressure by tension from the walls of the circulatory system, so it has has no way to boil. A prepared individual can remain conscious for more than ten seconds, and stay alive for for several minutes, in a complete total vacuum. One NASA engineer involved in a vacuum chamber mishap has discussed the sensation of standing exposed in vacuum until he lost consciousness, from which he recovered completely.
  • On the DVD commentary, the Science Adviser Brian Cox bets the viewer £10 that they (CERN) will not discover the Q-ball particle that disables the Sun in this film's plot. He invites an email to claim the bet. That claim is due in 2017. (In the same commentary, Dr Cox also says that scientists do not gamble!)
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the scene where four crewmen are forced to go into outer space, with no protection, Corazon states that the temperature outside is -273 degrees Celsius. This is not true, because though outer space is near absolute zero (-273 degrees Celsius, 0 Kelvin) it is in fact never colder than about 3 K (from the cosmic microwave background), and in galaxies it is warmer (with radiation temperatures greater than about 10 K). (The interplanetary medium in our solar system has an electron temperature of about 100,000 K, but is so diffuse that this is not the relevant temperature to use.)
  • SPOILER: In some earlier versions of the screenplay, the Icarus ships used rotating sections to provide artificial gravity. This is not used in the finished movie, so people experience normal Earth gravity everywhere while aboard the ships (apart from a short moment in the Icarus II airlock before it is re-compressed). An early storyboard shows the crew boarding the stricken Icarus I and finding that the only gravity is "sideways", towards the bomb.
